Corellas apparently poisoned in Manilla

The NSW Environment Protection Authority is appealing for information about an apparent mass poisoning of native birds IN Manilla that was reported on Tuesday by a local wildlife carer.

EPA Manager Regional Operations North Branch Lindsay Fulloon said more than 50 Corellas were found dead or dying on the north-eastern side of Manilla in Strafford Street and round the Viaduct Bridge.

He said they are testing some of the dead to determine the cause of death, but we are also reaching out to the public for any information they may have about this tragic incident.

Anyone with information about the deaths of these birds is asked to ring the Environment Line on 131 555 or email [email protected]
